Title of Final Rule:

"Central Station Monitoring of Fire Alarm Systems”

Summary of Final Rule:

This Fire Department final rule amends existing rule
3 RCNY 17-01 to reference the new private fire alarm (central station) compensation rule (3 RCNY §17-02 entitled “Compensation for Operation of Auxiliary Fire Alarm Systems”); clarifies the requirements for obtaining a Certificate of Operation for a central station company and facility; and revises the requirements for registering fire alarm systems and associated terminals.

3 RCNY §17-02   (PDF)acrobat pdf logo (effective 7/1/09)

Title of Final Rule:

"Compensation for Operation of Auxiliary Fire Alarm Systems”

Summary of Final Rule:

The Department repealed the existing compensation provisions applicable to private fire alarm (central station) companies, as set forth in 3 RCNY §17-04, and promulgated a new final rule, 3 RCNY §17-02.  The current rule provides for compensation based on each central station company’s “terminal assignments,” which reflect the number of devices that can transmit an alarm, namely manual fire alarm devices, smoke and heat detectors, and fire sprinkler valves.

The new final rule, 3 RCNY §17-02, will calculate the compensation required by Administrative Code §15-127(a)(1) based on the cost of the Department’s communications office operation attributable to central station alarm traffic, with the Department’s other costs reflected in the fee for the Department Certificate of Operation, as provided in 3 RCNY §17-01(e).  The amount of compensation to be paid by each central station company will be calculated based on its percentage of all central station alarm traffic and its percentage of the total number of fire alarm systems monitored by the central station companies.
